CORKSCREW THEATER FESTIVAL is a brand-new festival coming to NYC this August that aims to increase access to production opportunities for a varied set of early-career artists, especially those who are redefining traditional creative roles and developing work through unusual collaborative models. The 2017 festival comprises five new plays with eight performances each, plus a reading series of five plays in development. The festival is presented by The Brewing Dept. and Fortress Productions. Columbia alumni involved include three of the festival's founders: Thomas Kapusta, Alexander Donnelly, and Alex Hare. The staff and creative artists also include many Columbia and Barnard alumni. Ex Habitus, by Barnard alumni Katie Hathaway and Lilla Goettler, will play August 23-September 3 and satirizes the world of millennial podcasting. Cradle Two Grave (August 35-September 3) is an emotional, semi-autobiographical play from Columbia alumna Morgaine Gooding-Silverwood about her relationship with her twin sister; the piece features choreographed by fellow alumna Raquel Chavez.
